Rev Roy: What I heard on the Newmar tour was that when they had their 11 coaches done, they could leave for the day.
My first reaction was that this was an anti-incentive to quality by causing those that want to get home to rush the process vs putting a maniacal focus on quality work.
My second was more a question in my mind of why anyone on hourly wage would want to cut their day short....unless they weren't paid hourly. Hmmmmmm. It made sense to me that a per unit pay system would be more likely to support a "leave when your quota is done" model, but that's just me speculating.
To the OP: I hope your Baystar issues are behind you and it's pleasant experiences going forward. I had a 2010 32' Baystar I bought new in 2009 and enjoyed for 8 years. Other than a bad fuel pump on the Onan covered under warranty and upholstery failures fixed by Flexsteel at no cost to me, the unit was trouble free. Best wishes for safe travels.
